U8 and 9 Rugby

Wednesday 28th November


Well done to all involved in the games played on Wednesday afternoon, in very wet and windy conditions St Marys U8 & U9 rugby squads welcomed Mowden Hall to Melrose to take part in what turned out to be very entertaining games. With all other rugby teams playing away from home and with the blessing from Mr Bell we were allowed the use of the front field to play both age groups side by side. The U8 squad played a 20 min game of touch which ended in a 3-3 draw with both teams playing well considering the conditions, a very good game coached by Mr Rawson.


In the U9 match, a 7 a-side contact game took place with all 14 boys available playing in what was a great advert for U9 school rugby with both teams attacking well with good fast running complimented with sound handling. Support play was vital as there were many good tackles made by both sets of players. Lots of points were scored with the result ending in a draw 8-8. A huge thanks to all the parents and grandparents who braved the elements to support the boys.


Our last match prior to the Christmas break is at Fettes on Wednesday 5th December when once again all players will take part.
